Giving Back to Gardens that Give

As part of our firm’s Linhart-To-Heart employee giving program, each of us receives four hours of volunteer time annually to participate in community service projects of our choosing. Last month, I took advantage of this and spent a lovely (and sweltering) few hours helping out at an Urbiculture community garden here in Denver.

Through my volunteer work for Slow Food Denver, I learned about Urbiculture. The Urbiculture mission – to provide Denver with affordable, local and sustainable produce – is an important one. This mission is accomplished by utilizing donated plots of land within the Denver Metro area, and turning those plots into masterfully-crafted, fruit-and veggie -bearing gardens. Much of the produce goes to low-income families and local nonprofits, meaning all Denver residents, regardless of economic circumstance, can reap the benefits.

Check out some photos from my fun day in the garden!
